1:01 pm
the pieces are political correspondent joins me by the studio to discuss how mobile competition can mean that the world of my face a more hostile future. and fewer than a third of researchers in science related fields worldwide email on the international day of women in science we ask our gender stereotypes still getting in the way. plus as berlin's international film festival enters its second week we take a look at an espionage thriller starring dan kruger some scenes were shot in secret in iraq but the film's israeli director insists his film is nonsense political to our correspondent as all the action on the red carpet. i'm calm assman welcome to the program iran is marking the fortieth anniversary of the islamic revolution. tens of thousands of people have gathered in the capital
1:02 pm
tehran for a rally led by president hassan rouhani he told the crowd that iran is determined to expand its military power and ballistic missile program anybody ask anyone for permission to do so. our correspondent are joined at those crowns in the streets of tehran to see how people in the capital are celebrating today. this way of strength by the government here there are several under her years under. one so still in law. school children. watching from the five year old phone if you want to make that you know that side of the main demonstrations back in nineteen seventy many of them are supporters of the revolution story that range . from supreme leader. how many images they're carrying you know they also so do not come. to america. others however are
1:03 pm
just enjoying the fact that they can form their own city and economy. however with the country in the biggest economic problem years more than that and i think back to the recent days you want to make it. better economic conditions for everyone. on join now for more on that with by aletha tolan a job he's a political scientist focusing on iran with the brookings doha center in a concert i lead now president rouhani he addressed the crowd at those celebrations in tehran how is it possible that this regime is able to still mobilize so many people in the streets for these anniversaries. well i mean in the recent past when we had anniversaries of the revolution as well they're normally a lot of people also carried in from different parts of the country who are
1:04 pm
given some benefits when it's ending on the other hand the regime has a social base the one that is also benefiting from from privileged access to resources so there is a combination of both factors. given those top u.s. sanctions the country. is there something for those people in the streets today to celebrate. well the picture looks quite bleak if you remember the uprising that happened in iran a year ago you see there is a crisis there are multiple crisis affecting the public social political economic and ecological so there is a lot of frustration even president romney admitted very recently that the economic situation is the word in the forty year history of the song republic certainly the reimposition of top u.s. sanctions have exacerbated the economic situation but yet we have to remember that
1:05 pm
the over the bulk of the economic challenges that iran faces is homemade there are structural constraints there is basically an oligarch you're running the country there is. so there is really a lot of structural problems that are homemade and there is huge social frustration among many sections of the population even among those who were. formerly considered to be part of the social base of the regime. the evidence of course but their younger generation i'm in it's a relatively young country and the next generation they've been advocating for reform so if you look ahead maybe what are your expectations for the future of iraq . well first of all if you look at the recent bombing you see that effort to reforming the system has not been successful so this is why we see a tendency of radicalization among some sections of society who do not believe that
1:06 pm
these comics you know this from a republican system. you know is able to reform itself so they're more radical chance being being advocated by some texans of the population as we've seen my approach as over the year of two thousand and eighteen so the challenges remain in men although of the islamic republic can survive now for forty years the president looks very fragile and the future is quite on to. leave until an age audience but the brookings doha center in concert thank you very much you're welcome. now let's take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world then a swollen president nicolas maduro has warned of the country is ready to defend itself against the united states as the country's military carried out the exercises on sunday the embattled leader is being challenged by u.s. that opposition leader won why dollars who declared himself interim president and
1:07 pm
is the man in the elections. thousands of protesters in haiti have clashed with with police in the fourth straight day of demonstrations against corruption and a collapsing economy protesters led tires and marched through the streets of the capital port au prince raising the pressure on him battled president joven el always. authorities in indonesia have launched an investigation after footage emerged online of a suspect being interrogated with a snake officers are heard threatening to put the serpent in the alleged pickpockets now in trousers the police have since apologized and said the snake was not poisonous. u.s. secretary of state's mike pompei o isn't barking on a five day tour to increase u.s. engagement in central europe as chinese and russian influence grows in the region pails first stop is in hungary then head to slovakia and poland in budapest he's expected to touch on topics including hungary's energy ties with russia and the
1:08 pm
expansion of chinese telecom giant huawei it's the first time the past as hosted a u.s. secretary of state since twenty eleven. let's head now to budapest where our correspondent stefan boss is standing by for us stefan just give us a sense of what's pomp ale's agenda will be on this visit to budapest. which well he will have to very agenda in the coming hours he will meet for instance human rights activists and that he sold so because there was international concern over due situation here in hungary we speak on gary and prime minister viktor orban being accused of cracking down old media and any kind of media especially and of course to your dish reach now he will also tool compiled these nice issues of course ways to government itself but it is saying time he wants to ensure it gets there he's not getting too much of a russian influence here in hungary at the united states he said very concerned
1:09 pm
about that and this will be definite the one of the topics as menace chinese influence here i think job on and president trump are often compared for being the strong leader populist leaders but how similar are the two countries that joined us . well if you talk about migration day are very similar and of course a deficit one of the recent so why the hungary and prime minister was one of the first european leaders actually to supports a de actually to candidacy also the truth at a time who was then of course a presidential candidate but at the same time derry schooled certain in the united states over policies by prime minister or bond including for instance regarding the central p. and european university to central european university because that's a was founded by us billionaire george soros not old though he has different political views then president truman the u.s.
1:10 pm
is concerned that that university feels forced to move most of its courses to neighboring because of the pressure here and that is still really a concern of the united states and also some of the issues and i think will be brought up as well during his questions we stop hungary in government today. that was our correspondent in budapest stefan boss a growth of britain's economy slowed to just two tenths of a percent of the end of last year lower g.d.p. growth suggests that britain's economy is in a weak position as it gets set to leave the european union at the end of next month with lawmakers in london still deadlocked on terms of that withdraw all economists in the e.u. are starting to speculate on the costs of their countries if britain crashes out of the e.u. without a new trade arrangement. with a new deal breaks it's still on the horizon nervousness is the order of the day across the e.u. and the latest survey out by one of germany's leading with search institutes
1:11 pm
provides little comfort it says germany could face as many as one hundred thousand job losses in the wake of a disorderly breck's it germany relies heavily on exports for growth and no deal breaks it would likely mean new custom duties on exports to britain causing a slump in german exports the survey says coal makers could be hardest hit with v.w. top of the list germany's not alone though a disorderly breaks it would affect other countries too within the e.u. germany is followed by france where fifty thousand jobs could be at risk china meanwhile could lose around fifty nine thousand jobs the total worldwide could be more than six hundred thousand. meanwhile signs of the potential damage to britain's economy are also becoming clear a new survey by the nun school of economics shows that since the two thousand and sixteen referendum british companies have shifted investment from britain to the
1:12 pm
e.u. stepping it up by as much as twelve percent around ten billion euros most come from the services sector the british economy is heavily reliant on meanwhile the investment in britain has done dropping by as much as eleven percent in the last two and a half years the report's authors say that that shows next it has made britain a far less attractive place to invest in. the world is in crisis the verdict of a report published ahead of the munich security conference leaders from all the major powers are meeting in the southern german city of munich this week to discuss global threats at a time when alliances that have kept the world stable for decades are under strain of this year's event the head of the security conference came to berlin to present his report. it's a hundred pages long and it's not a reassuring read the global order is falling apart who will pick up the pieces is
1:13 pm
the question posed at this year's security conference conference chairman what expects the europeans to take the lead in putting the pieces of the puzzle back together. and. should we simply stand by while a liberal international system based on institutions on rules and on the law just crumbles. faced. for german and european interests that would be a tragic but catastrophic development. i mean. one important issue will be defense spending and increased attention following the cancellation of the i.m.f. treaty and for the first time climate change we're not just be a sideshow because climate policy as a central aspect of security policy. as
1:14 pm
we want to demonstrate that climate and security are of central importance not only for us and europe but also for instance for ireland states and the pacific. protections are correct they will lose some of their territory they might end up completely covered by water. people then go. the size of the delegation from the united states has tripled in size and includes house speaker nancy pelosi for it's a signal that in the us too there's an interest in cooperation and in avoiding a dissolution of the international system. we're joined now by our political correspondent simon young look simon the host of this upcoming conference. is warning about quote a new era of great power competition i mean is this alluding to maybe a new cold war yeah in
1:15 pm
a way these but i think the conflicts and potential conflicts the munich security conference is going to be focusing on they go way beyond the cold war as we would have understood it in the twentieth century the munich security report that's being launched today is entitled to great puzzle who would pick up the pieces so it is about really the question if you like what happens in this room based global system if the u.s. in particular pulls back and no longer wishes to be the guarantor of stability and so on it is about nato and russia in that sense the cold war and the tensions that have grown there but it's also france it's about the rise of china we're going to see a member of the pull it bureau china's. top foreign policy spokesman who's coming to munich so that's going to be an important focus but many other things as well africa. migration what does that mean for food security issues
1:16 pm
around the world or the festering wounds in the middle east of course as ever climate change what does that mean for security and the arms race in space are a lot of things to focus yeah packed agenda a lot of talk there what are the chances then that we will see this i.n.f. treaty come up in these talks i'm think it's sure to be a key focus you know you've had the americans and the russians pulling out of this range nuclear forces treaty with recriminations on both sides donald trump says you know we're increasing all our hospitals will kinds of weapons so there's a desperate need to talk what's a good sign that a huge american delegation big. when we've ever seen that news before of fifteen members of congress even more than that perhaps including and nancy pelosi and mitt romney and many others so they all going to be talking whether they'll be progress
1:17 pm
on ins and on the matter so much on the agenda here this is taking place though of course in germany in munich. germany is a big part of the european union what can e.u. leaders do about all these issues you have as i think is a recognition that the e.u. does need to do more than it's a paid more is don't trump says well that's happening if not quickly enough but as well finishing there was saying today you know they need to develop better more effective defense cooperation also projects in the pipeline for instance of franco german fighter aircraft they've been talking about pooling and sharing capabilities for many years but a lot of people say you know more needs to be done so they'll be. the concerns of course about brics it what does that mean for european defense cooperation we'll see the french german and british defense ministers talking together on a panel in munich i'm going to start on friday is the main event ok the political correspondents i mean young thanks a lot. well women are still lagging behind in science related careers
1:18 pm
making in fewer than thirty percent of science and tech researchers worldwide you know says participation in fields such as information and communications technology natural science mathematics and statistics is especially low the agency believes that longstanding biases stop girls and women from choosing jobs in science in the first place today is the un's international day of women and girls and science it started four years ago to help break stereotypes and provide access to science. on asako from our science department she's here now with more on this now on a i can hear a lot of people out there saying look at it's twenty nineteen what's the deal why do we still need this international day of women and girls in science what's holding women back well there are many reasons we mentioned already discrimination buys this but they are also social norms and expectations and the other reason could be because there's a lack of female role models so the history in science has been written as a history of man we don't know many female scientists maybe mary corinne want to
1:19 pm
know both my sis for research in radioactivity of course but other than dat actually it's quite sad because they have been a lot of female scientists out there even thousands of years ago. the first woman whose name appears in the history of science is present yet she practiced medicine and trained more than one hundred midwives over four thousand years ago. bella to calum a babylonian is regarded as the first female chemist she produced perfume and developed a chemical process is still in use today such as distillation she lived a little over three thousand years ago. about fourteen hundred years later patsy of alexandria was the first woman to lecture and astro to me mathematics but this was an outrage to some clerics and she was later
1:20 pm
murdered. history books bear the story of her killing but not of scientific achievements many women pursued the sciences and the centuries that followed in seven hundred eighty six the german astronomer colleen hassel was the first woman to discover a comet and was considered the first female in her profession but an untold number of female scientists were hardly acknowledged until late in the nineteenth century . are looking back in the history books i mean big contributions there from from women scientists what's the situation like now today well we just celebrated done a strickland for winning the nobel prize in physics for her research with the post but it's actually do you see being because you know it's good data shows that women get to decide to pursue stem korea actually drop out in disproportionate numbers so the reasons for dadt are really deep rooted and structural the length of even
1:21 pm
published a study last week showing death even the research funding is this a bias in how to get it gets the research on so funding is obviously really important for studying so if women are at a disadvantage dare they won't pursue careers in science what are some successful strategies and how can we encourage more girls to start considering a career in science from the very beginning well approach has to be multifaceted of course we need. structural changes the koreans have to be more flexible woman shouldn't decide between having a family or pursuing a career and then also it's a little bit on all of us so we should reflect on our own biases who do really think of when we think of scientists is that a man or woman what do history books tell our children you know i just feel telling the tail off what's in a crick for example discovering d.n.a. or is it rose a limb is the mention of frozen in franklin who actually wrote the first notes
1:22 pm
about it so we should go to extra mile make them and more visible and days like these are really perfect for that right to use on asako today on the international day of women and girls in science thank you very much the berlin international film festival is in full swing and d.w. is there to give you a front row seat for all the latest premieres our correspondent on the in s. it was at the festival to review the operative which was partially filmed in secret in iran. a spy like an actor must be able to deceive. co-stars d.n. kruger and martin freeman say this help them connect with their characters in the espionage thriller the operative written and directed by israeli filmmaker you've all. krueger plays rachel a woman without roots who was recruited by the israeli intelligence agency mossad
1:23 pm
for a mission in iran. rachel proves to be a valuable asset entrusted with stealing information about iran's nuclear program. but rachel refuses to abandon her humanity creating a weakness in the israeli plot. the operative takes us into the conflict in the middle east mossad is portrayed as a heartless institution that is willing to sacrifice any number of human lives to achieve its goals and iran where some of the scenes in this film were secretly shot is shown as a country where everyone is forced to keep secrets it is really director adler is adamant that he has not made a political film i wouldn't make a film about iran i wouldn't know how i made a film where iran is a backdrop for some of the stuff in which i can be as precise about it as possible but that i'm not in a position to you know to say something informative about you know the mood in iran or whatever i wouldn't presume to cast member cass anbar
1:24 pm
a canadian actor with iranian roots plays far hot a businessman caught up in rachel's mission and are echoed his director's objection to framing the film as political. as much as it is set. on a backdrop that is politicized the this story is really human story it's about what happens to people in this world and the operative is not in competition at the billion dollars but it could still easily win over those who like a solid spy thriller. football player hockey. robbie has been released from custody in thailand after the country of his birth our brain with two requests to have an extradited the player who fled to australia and twenty fourteen on political grounds faced imprisonment in bahrain over vandalism charges which he denied following an international campaign for his release that threat now appears to be over. justice
